Would the term presscaler be used for other kinds of conditions such as one that changes the voltage range of an input?
The example given, in a PLL, is excessively complicated. Can we find an exmaple that doesn't require us to explain a PLL? RJFJR 18:04, 19 September 2006 (UTC)
And why is a toggle flip flop not a prescaler? Arnero 08:22, 20 September 2006 (UTC)
- So your viewing a T-FlipFlop as a divide by 2? (Darn, I overlooked that because I think of the input as asynchronous rather than regular). Sorry. RJFJR 13:08, 20 September 2006 (UTC)
- I went to put the image back, but before I do, is this really yhe best image to use to expalin this concept? I didn't see it as a particularly clear exampleof frequency division. RJFJR 13:09, 20 September 2006 (UTC)
After reading this article, I decided that it needed a lot of work. This is not a lesson on radio architecture, nor PLL design. It is about the prescaler only. I'm an RF engineer, and I could not follow where the previous argument was going. "Mixed" and "error voltage" could best be treated under a separate topic. For "error voltage:, please see PLL. You will see that the structure is now completely different. I have also added some useful links.--Cam Finnigan (talk) 01:55, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
